Recipe-a Day...

APR 30  Raisin Day
The word raisin is stolen word from the French.
Raisin in French literally means grape; pretty simple since they are dried grapes!
As a child I never liked carrot raisin salad...but I love this new
 lighter & fresher version...sans the mayo.

Carrot-Pineapple Slaw, adapted from Cooking Light
1/2 cup diced fresh pineapple
1/3 cup raisins
5 oz matchstick-cut carrots
1 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon fresh pineapple juice
1 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
salt and black pepper, to taste
Combine the first 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine oil and next 3 ingredients (through pineapple juice), stirring with a whisk. Add oil mixture to carrot mixture; toss well. Add parsley, salt, and pepper; toss well. Cover and chill.

Stay Cozy,

Hey! Hope you're doing well! Looks good, but I don't like raisins or pineapple :( No one can understand the pineapple thing and I don't either! Maybe because when we were kids, there were so many of us that we didn't have lots of choices. Who knows?
